What was once a landmark restaurant in Canton will soon be a place where visitors can take part in a growing downtown scene.

The former Peter Shears restaurant closed in 2012. The building is now owned by H2 Huth and Harris Wine Merchants, who converted it into a bed and breakfast.

Co-owner Whitney Harris says the basement will be a place where guests can enjoy wine, beer, and tapas.

Stow City Council has unanimously voted to fund a study on whether to create a walkable downtown retail district.

The new downtown would be on about 12 acres in and around the city’s post office and municipal complex at the corner of Graham Rd. and Rt. 91 – adjacent to where the old Stow-Munroe Falls High School once stood.
